Football, Football, FOOTBALL! Thats all I hear! I have A LOT of football to talk about so let’s get started!
First Pro Football- Yesterday was a great day in football. First Texans vs Jags – In this game was high scoring and there were records broken. In this battle it definitely looked like the 8-1 Texans would beat the 1-8 Jags by a lot. They even gave the Texans a 16.5 spread to cover! But this game all went down to the end. QB Blaine Gabbert got injured in the beginning of the game so the Jags put in Chad Henne. Henne was throwing TD’s all day. So was Texans QB Matt Shaub. Both of them had a favorite target throughout the game. Schaub’s target was Andre Johnson and Henne’s was Rookie 1st round pick Justin Blackmon. This was the first game Blackmon was a weapon for the Jags. The game ended up 37-37 at the end of regulation so they went to OT. No one scored for the first 10 minutes but Matt Schaub connected with Andre Johnson for a TD for the win. Matt Schaub’s after game stats were 5 TD’s, 527 passing yds and 2 picks. He tied the 2nd place record for passing yards in a game. He was only behind Rams old QB Norm Van Brocklin. He also had the most fantasy pts on the day (49). On this game I would say the Jags played their best game of the season yesterday.
Here’s a few more highlights from yesterday’s games : Pats – TE Rob Gronkowski leaves game vs Colts after breaking forearm while blocking extra pt. Says he’ll be out for 4-6 weeks. Falcons – Ryan throws 5 picks no TD’s but still hangs on for win vs struggling Cards. Colts – Luck throws 3 picks including 2 pick 6’s in 59-24 loss to Pats. Jets – The NY Jets shine in 29-13 win vs Rams. Chaz Shillens gets a Rec TD and RB Powell got rushing 2 TD’s. Pittsburgh – Backup QB Bryon Leftwitch starts for injured Rothlisberger in rivalry game vs Ravens. He got a rush TD on a 3 play 1st drive in dissappointing loss. MNF- The Cutler less Bears face off vs the 49ers in Defensive battle tonight on ESPN.
